Thierry Henry resigns as coach of Montreal in MLS

Thierry Henry has resigned as coach of Montreal in Major League Soccer after one season on Thursday, citing family reasons.

The 43-year-old former World Cup champion with France became Montreal's coach in November 2019. His team had eight wins, 13 losses and two draws in the pandemic-shortened season, finishing in ninth place in the Eastern Conference.

Montreal lost to New England 2-1 in the postseason play-in round, its first playoff appearance since 2016.

Henry said he is returning to London to see his children. Henry starred for Arsenal from 1998-2007.
